3. Larisa Zhulitskaya
When a couple in Russia noticed aggressive behavior coming from their two-year-old daughter, they set up a hidden camera. While the camera rolled, they soon realized the reason… their toddler was being abused.
The hidden video camera captured the disturbing events while they were out and their nanny, Larisa Zhulitskaya, was placed in charge of their daughter, Sasha. Zhulitskaya threatened to put Sasha’s face in her bowl of soup if she didn’t eat it, only after grabbing her by the hair and slapping her across the face. Mealtime ended after Zhulitskaya roughly wiped her face clean and shoved her out of her chair. After locking Sasha in the kitchen, the nanny-from-hell relaxed on the sofa and watched TV.
While Zhulitskaya denied any routine abuse, she said that on that day she was in a “foul mood” because of personal problems. Still, the parents did the right thing by firing her and giving the videotape to the police.
2. Anneliese Brucato
A Long Island, New York nanny wanted to make the four-month-old child in her care more “manageable”, so she decided to medicate the girl.
The 48-year-old, Anneliese Brucato, gave allergy medicine to the infant so she would be calm and make her job a lot easier. It didn’t matter that the warning label on the box clearly stated that the medicine wasn’t intended for children under 4 years of age. Accessing her nanny cam on her work laptop, the girl’s mother saw Brucato giving her daughter five doses of the allergy medicine on the nanny cam and raced home.
While she denied the mother’s accusations, Brucato was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
1. Gyulchehra Bobokulova
Yet another story from Russia, this one involves a 38-year-old nanny by the name of Gyulchehra Bobokulova who murdered the four-year-old girl in her care. But the story doesn’t end there.
After her older brother and parents left their apartment, Bobokulova murdered the child and set the apartment on fire before leaving. What makes this story truly disturbing is that, before leaving the apartment, Bobokulova cut off the girl’s head! She stood outside a Moscow subway station and, with the girl’s head in her hand, repeated an Islamic slogan.
Bobokulova was arrested and charged with murder and is currently undergoing psychiatric tests to see if she understands the severity of her actions.
